I would hope an east coast select side wouldn't get thrashed by Qatar and Panama either.

Macedonia vs Australia

I can't believe I watched this game and not the Germany game. 0-0, very few chances from either side. It was good to see Elrich get a game for Australia.

Time to become a republic. Only if the previous model that went to referendum is tweaked a lot. I voted against it then, as I figured if it really isn't broke, why try and fix it?
